An obvious leak. Hose, radiator, water pump, gasket, etc. If it was like crazy you would smell or notice it leaking. Another area to look is the transmission fluid, is it a pink milkshake, then coolant is mixing with the trans fluid from a cracked cooler. also white smoke from the engine means your burning coolant, from a failed head gasket. Time to start investigating.
